LVLten Magazine – July/August and Sept/Oct issues

So it seems I haven’t blogged in awhile. With all the busyness, I seem to have neglected the blog! So to kick off this new aspiration of blogging more frequently – I am happy to post some my recent work for LVLten Magazine.  The July/August issue features my cover shoot with Disney actress Olivia Holt (from the show I Didn’t Do It). I also photographed The Thunderman’s Diego Velazquez (Nickelodeon), Disney Best Friends Whenever star Lauren Taylor and Secrets & Lies’ Belle Shouse. In the current Sept/Oct issue, my cover shoot with beautiful Disney star Sabrina Carpenter from Girl Meets World along with inside features including actress Hana Hayes from The Grinder, Pro-Dancer and Model Larsen Thompson and Every Witch Way.

LVLten Magazine – May/June Issue

I am so excited about the May/June Issue of LVLten Magazine featuring my cover shoot with actress, Kelli Berglund (Disney XD’s Lab Rats) and Karan Brar (Disney Channel’s Jessie). They were so much fun to work with and I am so thrilled with how the features came out. Thanks to a wonderful team on both shoots. Kelli Berglund team: Violeta Meyners (makeup), Jenna Baltes (hair), Maly Siharath (wardrobe styling) and Nick Farias (video – behind the scenes of our cover shoot coming soon to the LVLten YouTube Channel) and writer Siouxsie Dilger and to the Karan Brar team: Stephanie Witter (grooming), Megan Kelley (wardrobe styling) and writer, Lindsey West. Great job, everybody!  Make sure you pick up this issue. This magazine is for the young performer (actors, models, dancers, musicians) and their parents and is a wealth of information on navigating the show business industry. Exclusive celebrity and industry professional interviews (agents, managers, casting directors, publicists) where all the questions YOU want to know are ASKED! and so much more!
